Worldwide Typewriter Day 2011

Ted & Tori travel to the Brinton Desert Botanical Garden (like a mile away) to celebrate World Typewriter Day 2011 by typing on their matched 1964 Hermes 3000’s in the 108 degree heat.

Matched 1964 Hermes 3000's - Easy and Joanie

Our Typewriter day video. Hopefully watching two people type is less boring than watching one person type. :D
We decided to celebrate the event with a quick trip to take our video in a suitably vegetated environ.

  1. Ace video! Looks hot – hope you found refreshment. And a history lesson. Top value post.

  2. I feel like part of your family, typing on my own Hermes 3000 for Typewriter Day:)

  3. A very cool video on a very hot day.
    Yes, two stars are better than one. And matching Hermes 3000’s, how cool is that!

    Cheers, Ted & Tori!

  4. My favorite part of these videos is seeing each persons individual typing style. Goes to show how typewriters are such a personalized tool. Each machine is unique and each user adds their own flair. Great video and pictures! I’m sweating just by looking at them.

    1. Heh, we were definitely sweating! Our sunglasses had little pools of sweat building up.

  5. You know, in that forth picture below the video, the cactus’s shadow looks like Kokopelli. Wonder if that’s significant.

I've decided to set up some ground rules for comments, because some people just don't get common courtesy. Here's a reminder:

  1. This is a personal blog, not a free price estimating service. If your comment in any way asks me to slap a value on something so you can sell it on Ebay, well, it will be ruthlessly ignored and deleted from now on.
  2. I don't diagnose problems on things I can't see and touch and take apart. Since I can't see or touch or take apart your thing via a blog comment, I simply ignore requests to diagnose problems with your things.
  3. STAY ON TARGET! I know you're very excited to have found someone who knows something about your doo-dad, but if you post your question on one of my posts that has nothing at all to do with the subject you want to discuss, it will make The Jesus irritated, and *nobody* f*cks with The Jesus.
  4. Be Nice.
Well, that's about it for rules.
If you can live with that, then Welcome, and please join in. (:
